My Mom cannot remember what day it is or what we have planned for that day. She remembers long ago family events but cannot remember what she had for breakfast. I do not believe she has dementia and her Doctor and nurse do not think she has. She is not confused and can carry on sane conversations. She still makes sense when I talk with her, but her short term memory is getting worse. I don't want medications etc., but would appreciate ideas for natural healing. I want to find brain exercises she can do which would slow down memory loss or restore memory if possible. If this has already been addressed, I will look for the thread. Thank you in advance for suggestions and advice.
